4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but the best PC gamepad so far
I've done extensive testing with many PC gamepads, including theSaitek P2500 Rumble Force Pad, the NYKO "Air Flo EX,"Logitech's Dual Action Gamepad (the ubiquitous 20$ everyone seems to get from Best Buy), the Interact Hammerhead FX, and all models of Thrustmaster's Firestorm. I've used all of these pads over an extended period of time with intense use, and I heavily favor and recommend the Thrustmaster Firestorm models. Some controllers simply aren't reliable and break after only a few weeks of use (Logitech Dual Action Gamepad), while others are uncomfortable or have button configurations that, while original, tend not to be as good as the traditional PSX dual analog design (Saitek P2500, Hammerhead FX). The newly released Nyko Air Flo Ex is a nice, large controller with a cooling fan that works; unfortunately, the controller's directional pad is mediocre, the start/select buttons are very difficult to push, and the fan is annoyingly loud.

As for the Thrustmaster Firestorms, they are generally high quality game pads, have the features you'd expect to have, no more and no less, have nice analog sticks and generally nice directional pads. Note that there are many versions of the Firestorm, but I will discuss the models including analog sticks only, as most tend to expect analog stick capabilities in their gamepads. The traditional Firestorm came with a directional pad with a flat surface that the thumb could "press." Refer to the product image here:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000056Q1D/

Now, the newer Firestorm models, particularly the Dual Power 3 and the wireless version, have a directional pad that's designed to make your finger lean to the desired direction rather than press it. Refer to the product image here:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00008ZLHK/

I suppose this makes moving around the pad easier, similar to that of an analog stick, but it makes pressing one single direction, such as "left" error prone -- you often get down-left or up-left. This, subsequently, makes it impossible to "tap" a direction accurately. Keep this in mind when purchasing one of their pads, because if extreme accuracy in the directional pad is a consideration, then you might want to choose an earlier model. To the newer dpad's credit, I have been unable to wear out of one of these dpads, while I was able to wear out one of the older versions.

Also, a warning about the wireless version of the Firestorm: it's behavior is erratic at best. Note that my comments are based on the controller's performance with fully charged batteries and with the controller directly next to its wireless base. There is a slight lag between pressing a button and having it registered by the base; this is probably to be expected, but is unacceptable in some games. The problem is exacerbated if it's the first button you've pressed in awhile, because the controller "powers off" and must "power on" again when you press your next button, which takes a second and sometimes your button press is lost. A better model would be to explicitly set the controller to "on" so that it is always transmitting and doesn't have to detect when the user is no longer using it. This is done by the official Nintendo Gamecube wireless controllers and works quite well. if you must have wireless, I must recommend that you look towards other vendors' wireless models.

Linux: the Firestorm controllers in particular work well in Linux; they have no troublesome features, like shift buttons or turbo switches, that are sometimes not supported in Linux.

4-0 out of 5 stars great gamepad, software needs a little help
I did extensive research on gamepads before finally buying this one.Excluding wireless controllers because I was not interested in buying/recharging batteries time after time, I found the best 3 gamepads were the Belkin Nostromo N45, the Saitek P2500, and this one, which, by the way, is the Thrustmaster Firestorm Dual Power 3.I point out that it is the 3rd revision of Firestorm Dual Power series because many retailers fail to distinguish one from the others, and the newest controller is usually going to be the best due to corrections of errors in past versions.You can make sure the product you are buying is the Dual Power 3 by checking the Manufacturer's ID number, which is 2960630.Unfortunately, I couldn't even find that number on Thrustmaster's site.I just happened to get lucky finding a retailer with the number and with a picture of the box big enough for me to read "Dual Power 3" on the side. Anyway, on with the review.

Many reviews have noted and praised the soft material that this gamepad is made of, and I have to say I prefer it as well instead of a smooth plastic that can get slippery. Another feature that adds to one's ability to grip the controller is the addition of 2 trigger buttons on the underside of the controller.I guess the best comparison of these would be the trigger on the N64 standard controller, but the N64's trigger doesn't fit your hand like this one does. The controller fit my hands very well, and I didn't experience notable cramping during extended gameplay.The buttons are just the right size.All of them are as responsive as I would like.The Dpad is probably the best you can get for an 8 way pad, and the analog sticks have the right tension and are accurate.The rumble also felt good, and while it doesn't work in all games, it goes well in the games that do support it. Though I've only had mine for a day, I can only assume by the feel of it that if you aren't an intense gamer that slams the dpad and analog sticks around during play, this controller should last you a while.

As for the software, it was a bit tricky getting it all to work at first, but it wasn't impossible.I believe the instructions say install the programming software, Thrustmapper, first, then install the drivers.Well, before you do anything, go to Thrustmaster's site and get the latest versions of everything (drivers, software, help file, etc.) because from what I've read the software and drivers contained on the CD are outdated.Once you have all that stuff, I found that it only worked when I did the opposite of what it said: install the driver first, then install the software so that the software can recognize the existence of the controller. I was sure not to plug the controller in until after everything was done installing and rebooting.After that, the software has worked fine.It is still a bit confusing due to no documentation, but I think most of us can make it.By the way, while it isn't advertised as much as it is for other pads, this one can also assign control of mouse axes in games.Another thing not advertised much is that the profiles you make for each game can be activated automatically (when you start the games .exe) or manually.If done manually, you can actually navigate windows with the controller, but I just don't see a need to do so.My only gripe with the software so far is that I haven't found a way to map the simultaneous pressing of two keys to one button.For instance, on the dpad if the up arrow is mapped to
'w' (the forward key in most first person shooters) and the right arrow is mapped to 'd'(the strafe right key in most first person shooters), i haven't found a way to map the diagonal arrow going up to the right to 'w' + 'd'.This, while annoying, isn't a major problem for me since most games I play can make use of the left analog stick for movement instead of the dpad, but I will continue to look for the solution in any case.Other than that everthing has worked fine.I have played a few games already and it has performed how I would expect it to.

Obviously I cannot vouch for the long term durability of the controller, I can only speculate that its strong feel will last a long enough time for newer, better controllers to come out.

Overall, I'll give it a 4 because of the minor confusions in installation and the mapping problem.To be honest, from what I have read in all the reading on gamepads I have done, no one gamepad for sale today is without its flaws, and every pad I've seen will have some reviewers who praise the pad without much reason or thought, or who bash the pad because of unique problems (big hands, small hands, rough play which breaks the controller). So, take all reviews with a grain of salt.In my opinion, however, I felt this was the best I could get for the price.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid, comfortable, dependable.
After my old Gravis Gamepad died on me after 2 years of service, I was looking for a nice replacement with some modern features.When I was controller shopping I looked for 3 things - first, I wanted a controller that felt solid in my hands.This one fit the bill perfectly.It is heavy enough to fill your hands and not rattle, but light enough that it doesn't cause any fatigue after playing for hours.Second, I wanted a controller with responsive buttons that were within easy reach.Again after trying all the controllers on display at my local computer store, this one worked perfectly.There aren't any extraneous buttons and they fit into the highly recognizeable dual shock configuration - with the addition of two extra trigger buttons on the back.In addition I wanted a d-pad that was responsive to all 8 directions without sticking to any of the 2 major axis'.
Finally, I wanted one with two heavy duty motors.From my explorations inside the various controllers, these seemed to be the most reliable, best mounted motors in the same price range.

The only problems I had with this controller was due to the dated drivers shipped with the joypad.Just don't install the drivers off the CD.Rather go to Thrustmaster's website and download the most recent drivers right off the bat.

All in all, as I'm not one to vent my frustration on my controllers...(ie leaning on the analog sticks), I see this to be the controller to last me until I decide to go wireless.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best new games for old school beat them ups fan
By reading the diffrent reviews about Spikeout around the net, it seems that very few people knew about this Sega classic. I was fortunate enough to enjoy this game back in 1999 when I was living in Japan. Spikeout: Digital Battle and the updated Spikeout: Final Edition was such a huge hit there, that Sega arcades in Akihabra and Shinjuku have more then half of their basement floor area dedicated to Spikeout machines (and it is rare to find an empty machine to boot.)

Although the home port is several years late, I'm a happy camper that this game is finally made it to my living room. Although I do agree with all the diffrent reviews about this game (such as bad ai, outdated graphics and its difficulty level.) the fun factor, especially when playing with 3 other people is possibly the best in its genre.

Many people who dislike the game say that the gameplay is not deep and it is a pure botton masher. The reality is, you wont get very far in the game if you just mash bottons because this game has loads of combos, team combos and juggles. There is nothing more funny and satisfying to pull out 100 plus team combos on one poor boss together with your spikeout buddies.

Though I have to admit that despite of all the great new characters and content, the graphics seems to be watered down compared to the original arcade version. Also playing solo is a brutal and painful experience unless your a hardcore fan (then again, even in the arcade version, going solo is not a good idea). So solitary players might get fustrated going through the game in story mode.

All I can say is although the port lacks polish and somewhat flawed in its execution, the extras, the diffrent game paths, the great multiplayer support makes this one a good title to pick up especially for those who want oldschool Street of Rage/ Final Fight action. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MARIO!!!!!!
WOW!! This is a good game and has a looooooot of games!!!! I like this game!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars good game
I don't own this game,but i have played it before and I'd say a 4 out of 5 stars,sure you start out as easy but as you advance,u unlock more games new and old and harder settings such as meduim,hard and if you think you can handle it,super hard...yes there are four settings instead of one.

I personally love the little sounds and music this game has to offer,and a game gets harder as you progress.

If you think this game is for kiddies...then I'd have to say your wrong ;)

2-0 out of 5 stars Ripofffor the old folks who played it and are now rich
This is just a money ripper aimed at kids from the 80's who have played these.Some of them are now rich, feel nostalgic about their childhood, and must get this game.The ones don't have much money still buy it by only eating once a day for about a week.

3-0 out of 5 stars I liked it.........For a while
I will admit that I enjoyed this game for around a week or so. The gameplay was repititous, and took alot more time than I would take to finish the levels. I still play it on and off, although I paid $40 for the dang thing(wish I would have checked amazon.com before making that splurge)

4-0 out of 5 stars Just got this game !!!
I really loved the Game and Watch of the yesteryears.So it was exciting that they have this for the Gameboy.But the only thing is that I don't know how to save the high scores or get the stars to unlock the other games.The instruction of the game tells me that all I have to do is to press start during the game and to turn off the unit.Nothing happens.
I don't know if I bought a defective game or something.

5-0 out of 5 stars The review to end all !!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok for everybody who is on the fence about giving this game a try
I'm going to make such a case for this game that anyone who reads
this review will atleast have to give this game a try and I'm going to do this in 6 steps.#1 the graphics:the graphics for this
game aren't ground breaking but they don't need to be.this games graphics are just fine you don't need to have mind blowing graphics just to make a game a blast to play.#2 the gameplay:The gameplay is very good the only problem I had was when I had 60 or
70 aliens fighting around 110 K10 aliens and even then I didn't get to much slowdown,if you want to see some slowdown try army men air attack on Ps1.#3 the plot: the plots not like movie depth
where you get a background about the background,but it dosen't need one it's plot is just fine the way it is.#4 the controls:the
controls aren't to hard but they are a bit challenging but when you spend a couple of hours on this game,the controls are just like MOH:RS.#5 the characters:the characters in this game are stunning they are very,very well done they vary from each species
as they should and there are three technology levels,1 the aliens
:are the most primitive species of the group,they kill with their
arms,tongues,tails and blood.2 the colonial marines: they are in the middle of the group between primitive and advanced.3 the predators: the most technologicaly advanced of the three,they kill with searing plasma and super sharp blades.#6 the overall:
this game overall is a great game fun to play,try getting allthe breeds in one group.well that's all I've got to say about this game.

5-0 out of 5 stars the best of the best
alien versus predator extinction is the best and the most awsome game ever it even lets you play as one of the 3 speicies and let me tell you the aliens rock

3-0 out of 5 stars Wish it had been on computer
I thought that this game was great. it did need more missions and a multiplayer mode. But the game really needed to be on computer like most stragey games. over all the game was not worth that i spent 50 bucks. I should have waited for it to go down or read a review first. But it really should have been on computer. overall the price on amazon is what i should have paid but is anyone came out with a starship troopers game following this type of line i think it would be worth decent money.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good game but seems to be lacking features
I loved this game. It did very well for a RTS on a console. One thing it needed was a skirmish or a multiplayer mode. Since it lacks these options, it's replay value ends after you beat the campaign. The campaign missions were quite challenging on hard. A good game, but you should probolly rent it before you buy it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Aliens Versus Predator Extinction
As a Predator fan, this game was highly disapointing. For one it was too short. It needed more missions and environments. For two in most games like this u are able to build some kind of a base and/or defense. The most u could do here was place a few mobile guns around. And that was only for the Preds and Marines. Third of all, it should not have been a strategy game, not for the PS2 console anyway. It should have been a third person game. Even if it was a first person it would have been somewhat more exciting. All in all I give it a 2 1/2 outa 5. And thats being generous. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay for beginners but get one on eBay!
This mat is okay for beginners.It won't last too long for advance users but this mat is a great way for a beginners to learn how to play.Some people recommend duct tapping plywood on the bottom of the mat some it responds better, but if you get a mat anywhere, I STRONGLY RECOMMEND getting one on eBay.Usually, they are brand new and factory sealed.They usually come in a sets of two (one for you and a friend) and sell for about $8.50 like this one (either in XBox or PS2) and $15.95 for shipping (The Buy It Now price on eBay is usually $8.50 but you can still bid on it to save a couple of bucks).Shipping for these mats on amazon.com are $4.49 for 3-5 day shipping and $8.98 for two day shipping so you still come out ahead on eBay.I got a mat that retails for $130 (its sort of like the mat that sells for $99 here; its more expensive because it has extra padding and it will last longer) for $20 and $25 dollar shipping.For hardcore fans who really got some moves and play the DDR games a lot, eBay has the metal dance mats with the bar (looks exactly like the one in the arcades) for about $150 (not including shipping).Otherwise, this is an awesome mat but if you want to save money and get one for when a friend comes over, get one on eBay (if you get one on eBay, search ddr or search ddr extreme).

1-0 out of 5 stars This is not a quality product.
Buyer beware -- If you're buying this because it's the cheapest dance mat available, you're going to get exactly what you paid for.I am just getting into DDR so I bought this to practice at home.It worked great for a couple of weeks, but now the up arrow is screwy and doesn't always register, which makes it extremely frustrating to play.I estimate I got less than 20 hours of use before it started to fail on me, which is inexcusable.In short this pad is not worth the money or trouble.Look elsewhere.

1-0 out of 5 stars ~Whacks mat with a shovel~
I first started playing DDR at a friend's birthday party, where I got hooked on it and asked for it for my own birthday.Well, knowing my parents, they got me DDR just as I asked. (They love it when I excersize without them bugging me, I bet they thought DDR was a gift from heaven. xD) Along with DDRMax 2, they got me this soft dance pad, and for a while, it did great.I got better and better, and eventually, I progressed to Standard mode.That was when the madness began.At first, it was just the fact that it got scrunched up like a raisin after a fast song.And also, it slid under the couch or onto the wall mid-play, causing me to fail the song.And then, it got worse.Sometimes I would press a button, but it would not register.And the most annoying of all is when it registered when I wasn't even standing on it! It would just incessantly press the -> or <- buttons until I wiggled the buttons around enough to make it stop!The nice thing was, however, that after I got DDR Extreme, I got a new dance pad, same as the first.I had it all along, just in case a friend wanted to play.So, I hooked it up, and played on my "new" one.By then I played on Heavy mode (I rock =P), and the "new" dance mat lasted about... 5 days.And with that one, I accidentally stepped on the black hard "thing" on the front connecting to the wire.Now, the up arrow occasionally won't register any of my steps every other song.I have to wiggle around the black "thing" to get the up arrow to even work at all!Ok... the moral of my story is... if you are just beginning, this pad is for you.If you play on Standard, I wouldn't consider it.If you play on Heavy, don't sue me for damage to your floor when you take a chainsaw and slice the mat into shreds.If you play on Oni Mode (DDRMax), then don't even make direct eye contact with this product.It'll drive you to insanity.If you want a quality dance mat, buy a RedOctane 2.0 Ignition Pad.It's well worth the money.

1-0 out of 5 stars um... not much to say here but its not for true DDRers
ummm.... its ok for kids who just want to play around but...
see, i'm an experience Dancer and I got this pad about 1 and 1/2 years ago. now i invest my money on a metal pad. that broke and i got red octane. trust me. if you are on a hard standard song or heavy go get the red octane not this but this is prteey good for beginneres and might modes people. not for me.

2-0 out of 5 stars Okay Dance Mat...
When I first bought this mat, it was out of stock so I guess people like this. But I would like to warn that this mat may be fun, but not at all durable. I've had it for three months before it broke. the up arrow got seriuosly messed up and hardly ever works now. The down arrow is getting screwed up too. It slipps all over the room while I am playing it and it messes up my game. :P
This mat works as good as any other mat until you've had it for a while. I've had a lot of fun on this mat and eventually, I knew it was going to break but I didn't expect it to break so soon. It's been half a year and I've never played it agian. I recomend the redoctave.com Playstation Non-Slip Dance Pads.:D It's more durable and it doesn't take you surfing accross the room. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Afterburner 2
I have used this product for about a year, mainly playing IL-2 Sturmovik with it.I have used microsoft joysticks before, and this is a definite step up.I love the big throttle with buttons on it, and the stick is about as comfortable as you can get.The stick has adjustments for tension, but there are no adjustments to the rudder or throttle (which would be nice).
There are 2 extra positions on the throttle, 1 just before the max, and 1 idle- before min.it would be better if these 2 places were adjustable with adjustable tension for the throttle, but it works fine.
I do think the rudder that is on the throttle is useless, or at least hard for me to use.I would like a HAT on the rudder as well, but this has served me very well.With XP, it automatically identifies it, with no setup at all.If you don't have XP, you might have a problem because it does not come with a cd full of drivers.
This is a good bargain at $40, i bought mine for 60 or more.
Don't buy a used or refurbished one. My friend did and his rudder only works 1 direction, and it has little resistance.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nothing more than a Good Paperweight
After attempting to struggle with this product for 3 days in a Flight Sim Arena, I very easily drew up one simple conclusion."What was I thinking when I made this purchase?"

Pros:

1. Feel and Tension of the Joystick itself is not bad.
2. Feel and Tension of the Throttle is not bad.
3. Price seemed reasonable.

Cons:

1. No Software packaged with the product.
2. The Software for the product has to be downloaded from Guillemots website.
3. Basically the software (Once downloaded)is useless as far as fine tuning and adjusting the joystick.
4. No ability to adjust the sensitivity of the Joystick movement.
5. No ability to adjust dead spot when the Joystick is centered.
6. No ability to adjust rudder sensitivity (Either Twist option on the Joystick or Buttons on Throttle).
7. Without above three, executing precision movement was rather difficult.
8. The sensitivity on the rudder was set so high that the slightest twist would result in tremendous movement.

Basically this one is all Eye Candy - Looks good but doesn't deliver. As I await for my CH Fightersitck to arrive I have pulled my Sidewinder Precision Pro 2 out of retirement for the interim.It is a shame that MicroSux is not manufacturing Joysticks anymore.It was one of the few products they offered without any gliches. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Only a slight problem for FPS games...
I was hoping for an excellenet product, and in fact this controller feels very solid and durable, and performs as well as the Controller S in every game, except....clicking the Analog Sticks down is extremely difficult when tilted, expecially the left analog stick wich doesn't even clicks down in any other position that in the center, which renders it unusable in most FPS games where it's mapped to crouching.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent controller, but not for small hands!
First off, logitech makes great stuff.Their PC peripherals are the best in the market right now, and their xbox equipment is the same way.

Pros:
-Great price
-Coolest looking controller out there
-Excellent button placement
-Joystick is amazing, very loose and smooth
-Triggers have a good feel to them
-Great solid feel

Cons
-Not for people with small hands

For most people, this is an excellent controller.It's smaller than "the duke", but larger than the xbox controller s.

Personally, I really liked the look and feel of this controller, but had to switch back to the xbox s because my hands are a bit on the smaller side and I just couldn't get used to it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent controller - probably the best in the market
This control is very good. The handling feels great, very ergonomic and the buttons are placed in an excelent ditribution. The construction seems very durable, made with high quality materials. At this price I think it's worth every penny. The only "bad" thing is that it may be too big for small hands...

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent controller for the price
I've always liked the quality of Logitech game controllers so I thought I'd give this controller a try. Plus, I was too cheap to shell out $30 for the Controller S. The Logitech Precision is indeed a very good quality controller. The plastic casing is smooth and has no sharp edges. It definitely feels better than the cheap Mad Catz and Pelican controllers I've tried.

This controller is wider than Controller S. The size of Microsoft's Controller S fits my hands perfectly and I wear U.S. size large gloves. Initially, I felt that I had to stretch my fingers to reach the Logitech's left analog stick and the buttons on the right, but after playing a while I got used to it. The feel is definitely different between Controller S and the Logitech. I could not keep my left thumb on top of the left analog stick when moving the stick to the upper, lower, and right extremes. On the Controller S, I can comfortably keep my thumb on the analog stick at all times.

The two trigger buttons also seem to have dead spots at the initial travel points. When I played Colin McRae '04, the first 1mm or so of travel for the triggers didn't seem to do anything. Whereas a slight tap on the Controller S triggers resulted in immediate response.

I definitely favor the Microsoft Controller S over the Logitech. I bought the Logitech for multi-player action. I wouldn't mind using it once in a while playing with friends. The Logitech is a very good quality controller for half the price of Controller S.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sweet.....
The Logitech Precision Controller is very well designed. The analog sticks have a great range of motion and feel much more accurate that the Controller S. The analog sticks also "click" down much better when the stick is tilted, unreal tournament players will notice this instantly, as the jump funtion in that game is maped to the analog stick. The buttons feel right and are well suited to games that require quick response. The black & white buttons in particular have a nice rubber feel to them and are better placed than any Xbox controller on the market. Logitech products are first rate and this conrtoller is no exception. It is a worthwhile investment. You might also consider the wireless version which is just as well constructed and has the same response time. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Usuable but clumsy.Read for an alternative.
I have been seaching for a good gamepad to use for emulators and other games on my PC for some time now and have found that while there are many great gamepads being made for Playstation 2, X-Box, and other consoles, there are few good PC gamepads worth buying.While there were some positive aspects to this controller, the problems I have had with the other gamepads in the past were evident in this product as well:1)The buttons were much too close together, resulting in accidental pushes of random buttons;2)The analog sticks were very loose, without the resistance I was used to in other gamepads (ie. X-Box, PS2);3)The shoulder/trigger buttons (L & R) were huge, with only one on each side rather than two as most gamepads have now;4)There was no "start" or "select" button in the center.These functions could be programmed onto other buttons, but this was confusing and difficult to remember;5)The D-pad (the directional buttons shaped like a plus sign), essential for many games created for older cartridge consoles (ie. SNES, NES, Sega...), was very akward and imprecise.Pushes on the horizontal parts of the D-pad were often interpreted as up or down;6)Finally, the controller just felt cheaply made, as if it would break easily if dropped.The buttons clicked loudly (I prefer a quiet gamepad) were did not feel smooth to push.

While this controller could probably have sufficed, I was looking for much more from a $30 controller.In the end I returned this product and purchased on Ebay an adapter that allows you to hook a Playstation (or PS2) controller into a USB port and found some original Playstation controllers for very cheap since few people use those any more.Also this adapter allows me to plug two controllers into one USB port for easy multiplay.This has worked flawlessly and ended up being much cheaper (I believe the adapter was about $8 and the PS controllers were given to me by a friend).This is the method I would recommend.I hope this helps frustrated people like me who have so far been disappointed with PC controllers.

3-0 out of 5 stars A nice controller, not perfect, but nice.
This is a nice controller, lots of buttons and programmability, perfect for PC games or playing your favorite console emulators. The key-mapping features are excellent because you can create seperate profiles for each PC game or emulator you use. You can also use the Shift to give each button a seperate function. Setting turbo buttons is easy to learn.

This pad is nice, but not flawless.
Here are my gripes about the P25000.

1: I really don't see the point of having Rumble Pack as there are so few games that even use it. I was never a big fan of rumble and always thought it to be over-rated.

2: This pad is wireless, which might be nice... but then you have to deal with the batteries dying. Personally I like the Saitek P880 better because it doesn't give me any problems.

3: The L and R shoulder button's are a little too flush with the rest of the unit, they should be thicker, stick out more and give a good springy resistence like the rest of the buttons on the P880.

2: Pushing the D-pad up, down, or right makes a tick noise because its edges are hitting against the plastic housing. It doesn't do this when you press Left, there's just a nice rubbery springiness. ALL of the directions on the pad should feel this way. And why a hard plastic D-pad anyway? A softer plastic one would've been nicer and probably last longer.

Actually I had an idea... anyone remember Turbo Touch 360? It was like this little magic flat orange d-pad that sensed the heat of your thumb and kept you from getting blisters, now those were kewel. How come they don't make a PC gamepad with something like that?

The Saiteks come with a 2 YEAR WARRANTY. So in the unlikely event that the controller breaks before then, if you still have your proof of purchase (reciept) you can get a new one sent to you or pick it up at the store you bought it from.

2-0 out of 5 stars mediocre products
I returned the Saitek P3000 Wireless Gamepad because the batteries not working, and random glitches due to the wireless connection during game play. It was consistently a problem.

I decided, to keep with Saitek, but to buy this controller, so i could keep my profiles, and i wouldn't have to send a weekend programming it.

Right out of the box, i discovered the shift button did not work. So now i have to send this one back for a return.

Another weird thing is, when i loaded my profiles with this controller, they were blank. When i open the file, the data is still there. Instead of reprogramming it, i have decided to get the Logitech. I use their game-pads for my XBOX and have never had a problem.

I am convinced the Saitek just makes mediocre sub standard products. Its a name i will stay away from in the future.

Conclusion:
I just bought the , Logitech Wingman Wireless Rumble Pad its by far a better gamepad. Its 2.4GHZ, so it has distance. The software to program custom scripts is miles ahead of the Saitek SST software. When you load the profile, it automatically loads the game which it corresponds with.

Please, if your looking for a game pad, get the Logitech. Save your self the 3 weeks on pain I had to go through.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Solid Buy for the Console Gamer in You
I bought this controller on impulse after I found myself playing a some ported console games and emulators with no proper game pad, and I was pleasantly surprised by its solid design and features.

After some difficulties getting the drivers installed (a well-documented problem which I resolved by reading the online FAQs and may be resolved in the next driver release as they have beta drivers you can download on the Saitek forums that resolve the issue), I found that the driver software and key programming software is solid and intuitive.

The design of this controller is practically identical to Saitek's P800, and I can't blame them for keeping the same design. All of the buttons are responsive and easy to access, and the directional pad is accurate and solid, though it may take a bit of time to get used to it because it can feel too responsive at first.

The analog sticks are smooth and accurate, and also click in to act as buttons themselves. I wouldn't recommend binding these buttons for any vital tasks in games because they can be accidentally depressed, but for adjusting camera views or some similar functions, it can come in handy.

Overall, the large shoulder buttons and grips make this controller very comfortable for long periods of use, and basically make it a joy to use.

The rumble effects leave a bit to be desired, though, because I have yet to see the rumble effects work in games that don't use TouchSense's technology. This may simply be a problem with the fact that most PC games aren't designed to use a game pad, so there are few that actually have any force-feedback effects for me to really determine if the issue is with the controller or just the games I'm playing. However, in a game that does use TouchSense, such as Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, the effects are spot on, and overall a bit too intense at 100% gain (I personally set mine down to 60%).

Since rumble capability is the only thing that separates this controller from the P800, you should evaluate your own gaming habits and decide if it justifies the (small) price difference.

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent controller
Cons: The rumble is inaccurate - compared to the Logitech wingman rumblepad, it is less compatible. Digital button sometimes doesnt work.
Pros: Good layout, durable design, nice glowing blue light, comfortable to hold, like the PS2 controller, you can click the 2 joysticks, which is good. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Flawed, but probably closest to perfect out there
The Logitech Cordless Wingman rumblepad is quite the gamepad.And, I love it.It's not perfect, but it is very close.
Sure, the pad is heavy, and some people might find it a bit large, but that doesn't get in the way.The programming software i very simple, well thought out and intuitive.You can tell the designers actually used it.The pad has plenty of buttons, all of the programmable.I get heavy MAME use out of it, and it works wonderfully.With a little thought and cleverness, you can play dual stick games as well as paddle games (thanks to the throttle slider).It's not as good as one of those custom jostick setups, but it gets the job done.
The only other drawback is that it requires four AA batteries.That means replacing 4 AA batteries, which could get expensive.I've had mine for a couple months and have not had to replace them, though.Which speaks well of the auto-shutoff design.It's not perfect, but I can really appreciate the enginerring forethought put into this product.

4-0 out of 5 stars I love my wingman!
I love this thing. It plays better than any corded pad I own.

Pros:
Dual analog, rumble capabilities, and a digital pad.
Triggers. Four of them. Excellent range and it's as responsive as a corded pad.

Cons:
Batteries. You need four of them (AA) I work around that by using rechargebles.

It's heavy.

Before trashing this thing due to compatability problems, go to logitec's website and get the newer drivers. They fixed any problems I had with my wingman.

2-0 out of 5 stars Neat concept. Poor Execution.
The Logitech Cordless Rumblepad is a neat concept, but it sadly, hardly delivers.

The buttons and sticks do have a nice feel to them, and are quite responsive, but the problem lies in the design itself.

First and foremost, would be the shape and weight. Being cordless, it requires quite a number of AA batteries. No one wants to play video games using an ungainly controller that weighs sixty-four pounds.

As another reviewer noted, this pad is notorious for calibration problems. Soon after I recieved it, my left analog stick failed. Normally I wouldn't care, as I don't use them, but now it's always sending X+/- to the PC, causing anything I play to go crazy.

This is also a dual mode controller, with the D-Pad configured to also act as a hat control. Normally this wouldn't pose a problem, unless you're intending to play MAME or other emulator ROMs on this controller. It's not an 8-way Directional pad. You'll find that your common "Forward, Down, Down-Forward, Button" movements in fighting games are quite hard to execute.

All in all, I'd say pass this one up, even if the size and weight issues aren't... uh. issues.. for ya.

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY
This product is useless, as hundreds of people can tell you if you google search for calibration problems.The pad has a hardware problem which causes the left analog stick to break after a few minutes of use.You have to unplug it and plug it back in every few minutes to recalibrate the stick.Logitech refuses to fix it, so DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

2-0 out of 5 stars Great Pad, Terrible Longevity
If Logitech's corded WingMan RumblePad had the same design and ergonomics, I would have gotten that.However, it did not and I fell in love with the feel and action of the Logitech Cordless RumblePad.

What I feel is great about this pad is everything except the cordless facet of it.There are no hard edges or loose feel to any of the parts.There is nice, solid feel and feedback to the D-Pad (I prefer the solid concave disc, less fatigue).The dual joysticks are also concave which is nice on the thumbs.They also move and feel just like the sticks on the DualShock PS1/PS2 gamepad which is good.The buttons on the Cordless RumblePad are solid and have a good action to them.There are no harsh edges to dig into your skin.There are no loose, hard-plastic reactions or noises to these buttons.And the hand extensions are perfect for my hands.Once again there are no harsh edges and everything is contoured to fit comfortably.The rumble effect is just like the DualShock as well.It's neat and sometimes helpful, but really isn't necessary.Fortunately, Logitech allows you to control whether the Rumble effect is on or off (major battery conservation in having it off).I never had any problems installing this gamepad or getting it to work within games, until recently.

Gamepads are a seasonal item.They're only good for certain games.Often they are necessary for ported Console games.Which brings me to my present.I have the urge to replay Final Fantasy VII and VII on the PC.These games cry for a gamepad, so I fetched my WingMan Cordless RumblePad.After a week of web research I have discovered the my receiver is dead.And that this has happened to numerous WingMan Cordless RumblePad owners who have had their gamepad for a year or more.

There are no replacement receivers sold.The best advice offered is to "try" Logitech Tech Support. :(

With a decent set of rechargeable batteries (total of 4 AA, 8 if you want to hot-swap them) and a good rechargeable battery recharger that drains all the power from the batteries before it recharges them, you will have the best wireless rumblepad for a year.And then after that year you may find yourself with a dead receiver.And after it becomes a lost cause through normal avenues, you may find yourself wanting to open that receiver to see if you can find the short or whatever is causing the problem.You'll find the screw in the bottom holding things together isn't alone and that the seam on the receiver is sealed with some kind of ACME Super Glue and give up.

Wish me luck.I'm off to find a replacement gamepad.

from the beaches of omaha so many americans gave their lives I recomend this game and the movie the longest day
are soldiers were so brave and the english,irish,french and french resistence. There are so many games that don't have omaha beach on it as a first person shooter. Brave through the Nazi defense line as LT. JIMMY PATTERSON as you take normandy from NAZI controlI love history games based on world war II. I also recommend secret weapons over normandy just don't forget to put medal of honor frontline on your list.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love MOH
I'm not a hard-core gamer, because I have a job and a life, etc., but I got completely addicted to this game.I love the aim function.You can either move and shoot at the same time -- reasonably accurate, depending on your coordination -- or you can stand still and pull the left trigger to take dead aim on a target.With any weapon the target enlarges slightly, and with the sniper rifle you get an excellent, easily-controlled scope.I found this to be much more realistic than other games where you can just spray bullets in the general direction of the target and hit it.With this game, you have to actually aim correctly, and you have to hit your target in the head or the middle of the chest to kill him on the first shot (except with bazookas).The fact that you cannot save in the middle of a level is annoying, but does make it more challenging.I have completed the entire game on Easy and Normal, and on Difficult I was stuck at The Golden Lion for at least 6 months before getting through it with a gold star.The various medals you win along the way look very nice in your medal case.I love this game because I love using actual WWII weapons, not sci-fi weapons that don't exist (plasma rifle? gimme a break), and I love the history behind it. My only other complaint is that I wish there was a rated-M version for adults with more blood and gore.

5-0 out of 5 stars LIKE YOUR FAT GIRLFRIEND, THERE IS A LOT TO LOVE HERE
MEDAL OF HONOR: FRONTLINE is one hell of a game and I highly recommend it.Great story and a lot to do in about 20 levels of game play with authentic WWII situations and weapons.I especially enjoyed the sniper rifle and its ability to zoom in on targets.Made you feel like you were really participating.Although, I found the Panzerschreck rocket launcher to be about useless.

Many hours of gameplay and an interesting story-line with you as the one man army.Enjoy.

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed...
My favorite video game of all time remains the original Medal of Honor, the game that set very high standards for the first person shooter genre on the PlayStation console back in 1999. The original game was a massive hit, featuring enthralling missions that progressed beautifully level by level, tight level designs, and a believable enemy AI, all presented with an epic war movie feel. Obviously my expectations for MOH Frontline were understandably high, given the reputation of this franchise, the plethora of postive reviews, and the capabilities of the Xbox console. However, after playing through this game I must say I was trebly disappointed to find it is not the inspired sequel I had hoped for.

Perhaps most disappointing to me was the fact many of the missions are directly taken from the original MOH and MOH Underground, and even feature many of the same objectives. While the level's environments have been designed somewhat differently, the feeling of déjà vu on numerous occasions was still a major let down. While this is not going to bother those who haven't played the original MOH or MOH Underground, veterans of the series will undoubtedly feel cheated out of the opportunity to have experienced a true progression in this series. For the most part, Frontline feels more like a reiteration of the previous MOH games (with marginally improved graphics) rather then a new game entirely.

Which brings up anther subject... the graphics. While the MOH series has never really featured impressive graphics, given the capabilities of the Xbox, I felt cheated on this point as well. While the character models are pretty solid and well animated, the buildings and environments have a rushed and almost cartoonish quality to them, with unimpressive and often badly pixilated textures. Sadly the game has not progressed much in this department from the original PlayStation games. Perhaps this would be excusable if the level design and game play was outstanding, but both are very liner and feel quite dated in comparison to the standards set by other Xbox shooters, such as Halo.

While the Xbox presents a beautiful opportunity for the developers of MOH to really take the series to new heights, unfortunately Frontline feels tired and stuck in time, unwilling to offer anything that hasn't already been done before by the other games in this series. While the opening D-Day level is worth a mention as a truly exciting experience, it is the exception in this game, rather then the rule. WWII buffs will still find the game enjoyable, but those seeking a fresh progression in the series or just an exciting FPS experience will sadly find MOH Frontline is a disappointment.

Most GBA games nowadays are just a game to past the time between long trips and not for serious gamers such as myself. I currently own ten different GBA games that i enjoy very much on my vacation traveling and long car trips but i didn't find a game to actually play until now. Medal of Honor: Infiltrator is an awsome game to play for the serious gamer on the go. This game is probably the most in depth game i own for the GBA, just under Final Fantasy Tactics. Though i have not beaten it yet i do enjoy the missions i have played through. The first mission in the game is very exciting with and introduction similar to that of the D-day of the medal of honor from the home consoles. This game is very fun and challenging which is why i play this game instead of playing my PS2 or GC sometimes. The graphics are outstanding. You view the game from a top-down view instead of the Medal of Honor Undergrond FPS view. This GBA game also includes scenes from old Newsreels taken from WWII which is very impressive for a GBA. The sound of this game is fantastic with the main charchter shouting "INCOMING!" when some enemie troops are coming into the scene.

This game is very fun and has large depth to it making it a very enjoyable game all around. I highly recommend this game to casual and hardcore gamers alike. Casual gamers may not finish it but it is a very exciting GBA game to play on the road.

Overall 10/10

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant!
This is definately the best GBA game I have. It combines great graphics, sounds, and gameplay. It even plays real newsclips from WWII! This game is the best game you could ever buy, and it is at a great price! Highly recomended.

3-0 out of 5 stars A PASTIME GAME
THE IS AVERAGE THOUGH SOME MAY LIKE IT.SO RENT IT FIRST.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great game
Infiltrator features a variety of levels, including both first-person shooter and third-person action and stealth missions. Set during the United States' entry into WWII, Infiltrator offers a surprising wealth of variety reminiscent of old-school games like Ikari Warriors. Infiltrator's best attribute is its game design. While the first-person shooter levels are average, the third-person levels are substantially well balanced. The A.I. is very intelligent, and power-ups are placed just right. With 15 levels and GBA multiplayer link-up capabilities, Infiltrator is a must for any GBA collection. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars It does work on XP
Just got hold of a second hand Precision Pro 2, and tried to install the sidewinder software...guess what it doesn't load on XP.
All you need to do is plug the jostick in and it works just fine with no drivers. You can't use the sidewinder software, but you don't need it. My advice just Plug 'n' Play no worries :o)
I mainly use this joystick with Microsoft's Flight Sim and it's fantastic, very smooth.

1-0 out of 5 stars Precision 2 Joystick no driver for xp
Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 Joystick
there is no driver for windows xp (not work on cd includet),so waste of money

5-0 out of 5 stars Migrated from Win98 to WinXP
First all I got was "joystick not installed"...I called my computer manufacturer.No dice...check Microsoft.Microsoft says not supported for winxp.Sheez...great joystick, hardly used at all.So I searched the internet and found that if you install the joystick with the USB port connector it should work.I found the old usb connector, that I never used before, in my pile of computer cables, and viola...it installed perectly and with no more trouble at all.
NOW HOW COME MICROSOFT didnt simply SAY THAT ! ! !
That's the BS with sucha great company!! !
Maybe someone at Microsoft will read this???

1-0 out of 5 stars Microsoft doesn't support their own products!
I've been burned by Microsoft twice before with Sidewinder joysticks.The first time I bought one was when I had Windows 98.It was a Sidewinder Pro.Great joystick, plug n play, all that.When I migrated to Windows 2000, I found that the Sidewinder Pro was not supported (despite being analog--you'd think it would be easy to program drivers for it).I thought, "Okay, maybe there are problems, blah blah blah."I then bought a Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro, again, great product, plug n play, all that.Worked great.When I migrated again to Windows XP I found AGAIN it wasn't supported by Microsoft.There is NO reason why a company such as Microsoft cannot support their own products on their own operating system.I will NEVER buy a Sidewinder again.I can't trust them.Buy anything else.I've had great luck with the Wingman Digital Extreme--$28 at WalMart--excellent buy! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Calibration issues
I recently purchased this item. I thought it was a fantastic joystick,besides the fact that you were not able to twist it. It worked fine for about a week and seemed very sturdy. Then in all the games I used it with, the calibration was off and everything always went to the left, even when not touching the joystick. I had calibrated it multiple times, and it would work well temporarily, but then it would start in again. I finally got fed up after recalibrating it 20 times and I returned it. Do not purchase it, it has issues.

1-0 out of 5 stars when 1 out of 12 controls work ...
the manual states it's compatible with Windows XP: even after downloading the latest drivers from logitech, and getting active x 9, only the analog control works: non of the buttons are programmable: according to logitech, that's a 'known issue under XP' - hey logitech: how about making that information known to the buyer before they attempt to troubleshoot, and you received their money? It's not that this would be a brandnew OS/game control combination, for which perhaps the test matrix element wasn't executed ... Very disappointed!

5-0 out of 5 stars keep reasonable expectations
I plugged it in, it worked.I wanted a simple, inexpensive joystick.I got what I was looking for.I wasn't disappointed.If you want a real joystick, find a flight instructor and a Citabria.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Joystick, Heavy Base, Good Feel, Works Like It Should
I'm only writing this because I think the review, the only review at this point, is misleading.I have used the Attack 3 joystick for over a year now with WinXP and I haven't had one thought about this joystick working or not working, it just always worked. I think that it should have been obvious that there was something wrong with the system, not the joysticks, especially given that not one of the three they sent ever worked.
At least they were under warranty!

Anyway, I fly flight sims almost daily and have used this thing, no problems, and have been happy for two reasons:It has a comfortable solid feel and it doesn't skimp on the number of buttons.But because I use this for flying, I wish it had an eight way hat switch instead of the 4 directional buttons at the top so that I could not only look up, down, left, and right, but I could look up-left, up-right, and so on.

In summary, this joystick is a good value because for the price you pay you get thecomfort, durability, and functionality that you will not get with joysticks from other companies. Logitech does not make products like the first reviewer describes or they would have been out of business a long time ago!

1-0 out of 5 stars Did they ever test these things?
If I can stop just one person from buying an Attack 3, I'll be satisfied. Thinking that third time's a charm, I'm on my third stick in five months. Same problem every time. It's fine for a week, until like others have said, the X-axis starts behaving erratically, and eventually becomes uncontrollably wild.

I've even gone so far as using third-party software to try and adjust the dead-zones and calibration readings. Alas, the Attack 3 overcomes them all, the sensor readings are rabidly epileptic, and beyond help.

If you're looking for a budget stick, STAY AWAY. If you own one, take it back, it doesn't get better or 'settle in'.

This stick is going back for the third time and I will no longer buy any Logitech products. I'd have been happy to pay an extra $20 for a well made, durable controller, but Logitech have contracts with every major store to sell this piece of junk and other, slightly higher priced junk, so buying an alternative brand is a hassle, a goose chase and a long drive.

Edit: To electronics fan - you misread my review. The Attack 3 works great - for about a week. Try using it for something that requires quick changes in direction for long periods of time, a racing game for example. You can't exactly test out the stick gently ambling along in a 747. The calibration readings become erratic and then unusable. It's not my system, because there's other reviewers out there that have the same problems. Search Google. I'll say it again - a cheap stick, with cheap components and awful quality control. Best avoided. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars bad design
These hurt my ears, and because they use pressure to stay attached to your head, they press your ears against your head when they work, and after a while, the pressure wears down, then they pull your ears down and I'm sure after a while they will just stop working, because they can't attach to your head anymore. I'm very sorry that I bought these. The microphone is very low quality too.

4-0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to them.
These headphones are great.I the mic works great, it picks up every sound. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is becauseit does get a little bit uncomfortable after like hours of use, but the price is good and I like them.

1-0 out of 5 stars DON'T GO HERE!
Within 5 minutes of opening the box to this poorly constructed headset, the microphone dangled loosely from its housing, the cheap plastic conector having broken.The pads on the earpieces fell off and were very difficult to put back on, frustrating and very annoying to say the least.Returned to the store from which they came the next day.Only wish I could give them a zero rating.My opinion of this, and many other Logitech products,----yech!

1-0 out of 5 stars Very uncomfortable and does not sound good at all.
After wearing these things for maybe 5-10 minutes they are very uncomfortable. The large padding around the outside does little to help with comfort. They sound like listening through a pringles can. I tried using these with Counter-Strike: Source, and the gun shots sounded like hi-pitched firecrackers. Very annoying.

I returned these and picked up a Altec Lansing headset and mic for $10 more. Much happier with it. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Buttons stick over time.
I have owned three Microsoft Sidewinder USB controllers over the past couple of years. I originally bought one for use with console emulators on my PC, and ultimately chose this controller based on its popularity at the time (it was natively compatible with many emulator programs).

At first, the Sidewinder worked like a dream--it felt great and fit fine in my hands, the buttons were all in easy reach; I felt no strain or aches after hours of gaming. The directional pad was a little worrying, since I could not seem to get precise movement out of it even after numerous attempts at calibration and using it in various emulators. It meant that playing 2D fighter games was out of the question (it was impossible to rely on complex, timed directional presses to be recognized), but it still seemed to work well enough for most other 2D action games.

However, the same pattern of trouble appeared in all three of these controllers that I owned. After several months, the directional pad went entirely to mush--recalibrating wouldn't fix it, reinstalling drivers wouldn't fix it; it was hardware degradation. The D-pad went from vaguely imprecise to utterly unreliable. At first I wondered if perhaps some of my friends who had come over and used the controller had pressed the buttons too vigorously and damaged them, so I ended up buying two replacements before finally realizing it was the poor design (the last one I let no one else use, and I am very cautious and careful to use light pressure when I play--and with small hands, there's not much damage I can do).

The directional pad is simply unuseable after regular use. Often it takes repeated pressing or intense pressure to register movement in games. For example, in games where you need to double-tap a specific direction to make your character dash, the Sidewinder USB is unreliable--sometimes you'll dash, sometimes one of the taps won't register and you'll end up only walking. Also, sustained pressure on a directional button will sometimes just cut out, and you'll find yourself having to press the button again to resume moving. In addition to being useless for fighting games, I found my three Sidewinders became useless for all other action games and can now only use them for RPGs. Even while playing RPGs, the seemingly random lack of response from the D-pad is too frustrating to bear.

I'm sorry to say that my terrible experiences with this controller have scared me off from using any other Microsoft brand game input devices. Hey, I love my MS ergonomic keyboard and optical mouse--I just won't trust the company to make my controllers. I've switched to a Saitek pad and am a much happier emu-gamer now.

1-0 out of 5 stars Has a major problem
The sidewinder controller just so happenes to be my favorite controller.Although I liek it because of how it can be used, there is a major defect with them.I warn you I went through 3 of these controllers and all of them broke within 6 months.The controller out of no where will start glitching and USB will not recognize its even plugged in. It will connect and disconnect about every other second.

Although the controller is nice to use, because of its durability I rate it 1 star.Unless you don't mind replacing your controller every 6 months, than I will reccomend it.

1-0 out of 5 stars A controller without a D-pad!
Don't take the "5 stars rating" reviews in such consideration, because their owners don't seem to play many diferent type of games. It's directional pad is a COMPLETE JUNK. If you have emulators on your computer, like M.A.M.E, and usually play fighting games (Street Fighter, KOF etc...), FORGET it.
It is also NOT recommended to play any other emulator games. PC games are also a hard task to do.

Why?
Simply because the D-pad doesn't work. It's almost IMPOSSIBLE to make the moves work well.
The one star I gave goes to all the rest (I mean the buttons and the design).

Stay away from any gamepad from MS. They are the worst choice.

5-0 out of 5 stars A controller without problems, period.
This controller works perfectly to my experience. The drivers for it are already on most computers going back to windows 98, so you literally can just plug-in and play! This conroller is shaped-well with very well-placed triggers. The button layout is a bit large but one can get used to it; for 2-D games I cannot imagine a better controller.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!Where'd it go?
This is a really great gamepad, for all the reasons mentioned in the other reviews.What I like best about it is how comfortable it is to hold.No other PC gamepad that I've tried has compared.It's a joy to play with.

What I'd like to comment on is its strange history.It was originally released with a gameport plug (which is what I have)and with the ability to daisy chain them together.Then they were taken off the market, much to the chagrin of many.Then the USB version was released (exactly the same only USB and no daisy-chain possibility), but now once again it seems to have been taken off the market, as it is extremely difficult to find it anywhere (for some help with this, go directly to Microsoft).It was available the end of November '03, but it disappeared sometime in December.It confuses me as to why Microsoft would take a great (and seemingly well-liked) controller off the market... again. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Nothing to choke your opponent with, but...
my friends are huge gamerz, often our "parties" center around Spartan thrashing, zombie splattering, demon blasting or mushroom kingdom throw-downs... yeah we're real grown up. Now that there is an 11 month year old kid in the mix it is SO SWEET to not have a cord for him to pull out of the cube at the WORST POSSIBLE MOMENT or to be able to quickly flip the switch off when he suddenly decides to indulge in a little button-mashing. THANK GOD FOR CORDLESS.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent - if you can live without the vibration
WaveBird is a very handy piece of controller. It responds very well, you won't notice any difference with the normal Nintendo controller. Some might say it weights more, but you will probably not notice the difference in weight between the WaveBird and the regular corded controller. The only real drawback is the absence ofvibration. If you think you can do without it, WaveBird is perfect.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome
This is the best thing that ever happened in the world. sure you have to have different frequances when your using 2 or more of them and the shut off feature if you leave it one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works great, but where's the rumble?
I love it, but when I use it, I start to miss the rumble feature that's on the regular corded controllers. Oh well, I can play from 30 feet away.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Much Wireless Without The Rumble
Nintendo really has put so much in the works with the triumph of their Gamecube video game system. Yet, they definitely brought so many wonderful kinds of add-ons to this great system. Unfortunately, when I heard so much hype about their wireless controller, I felt a little bit stoned. The Wavebird controller for the Nintendo Gamecube fairs as a very accurate controller through many different channels. However, there are a couple of downsides to owning a wavebird. One of them is that you lose the vibration feel that the corded version has in itself by Nintendo. That remains unfortunate. Another downside is that sometimes, your controller doesn't work very well, when you have another remote beam in the middle of the way from a different device like the VCR, or television. All in all, I honestly suggest you buy the Wired version of the Gamecube controller, if you want a better time with the games you play. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Awesome company, great joystick.
I bought this joystick a couple of days ago, and as soon as I got it, I set it up and was playing in about 10 minutes. I am always impressed with saitek's products, and it was no dirrerent this time. Works well a good distance away from the reciever, which is smaller than most jumpdrives. And what is even better, the stick base has a built in holder for the reciever. The only thing thati gave this 4 stars for is because it is very light. I wasnt really expecting this, but I think it is something i can get used to. All in all i think this a very well made stick, extremely portable, and looks good too. I highly recommend this stick or any of the other great saitek joysticks.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great joystick with only a few minor problems
I bought this joystick to replace my Saitek x45 Digital Flight Stick when I realized at a LAN party that the cords were way to long and messy on the x45.So I decided to go wireless, wireless keyboard and mouse.But I had problems finding a good wireless joystick...until I found this one.Like all the other Saitek joysticks I have owned, the Cyborg Evo Wireless is slick looking and fully customizable.And of course, it's wireless.

Whether you're a righty or a lefty, you can move the butt of the joystick up or down, flip it around, whatever you want to do.You can tilt the head of the joystick one way or another, and you can raise or lower the platform with buttons 2, 3, and 4.But that isn't the end of this thing's customizability.Like all other Saitek joysticks, this comes with their SST smart programming software.You can program one of this joystick's 12 buttons (not including the axes or the hat) to do anything you wish...you can even macro program them!

The joystick performs quite well in gaming situations and doesn't lag or miss a beat at all.The stick feels quite sturdy, although being mostly plastic.Saitek sure does make some sturdy plastics.The stick is able to sustain my beatings of whipping it around when flying my helicopter in Battlefield: Vietnam.

I only have one complaint about this joystick, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.Every once and a while I get some connectivity issues if I leave the joystick alone for an extended period of time and then come back to it.Since the joystick has an auto-sleep funciton, after it goes to sleep for a long while it loses its lock on the transmitter.But pressing the connect button doesn't solve the problem.I have to take the battery out and put it back in for it to connect. Other than that, however, a very sturdy joystick and definately worth the money, especially if you are looking to remove the clutter from your desk from all those wires. ... Read more
